The history of Lammas cocktails dates back to ancient Celtic times when the first fruits of the harvest were celebrated with feasting and drinking. The traditional Lammas bread, made from the first wheat harvest, was often paired with ale or mead. Fast forward to modern times, and Lammas cocktails have evolved into creative concoctions that incorporate fresh fruits, herbs, and spices.

One such cocktail is the Berry Picking Cocktail, which captures the essence of the summer harvest with its blend of raspberry liqueur, fresh blackberries, and sparkling wine. It’s the perfect drink to sip on a warm August evening while enjoying the fruits of your own backyard garden or a local berry farm.

But Lammas cocktails are not just about the drinks themselves – they are also about the food pairings that enhance their flavors. The Berry Picking Cocktail pairs perfectly with a cheese plate of sharp cheddar, blue cheese, and fruit preserves. The rich and tangy flavors of the cheese are balanced by the sweetness of the berries in the cocktail, creating a harmonious taste experience.
